It has to be a new thing -

Having an 'Organized Virtual Life'.

Here in the real world it is easy to see if you are organized or not:
Talk to your accountant or look in your cupboard or closet.

In the real world I am pretty organized.
But virtual organization is throwing me for a loop.

Files, folders, passwords, emails, programs, bookmarks, creditcards, digital wallets, ect...

And it seems to me that given how much of my life takes place virtual that being organized virtually might be as important if not more important than my closet.

Why is being still so hard ?

I can't figure out why it is so hard.
Why it produces so much anxious energy. 

I have done it for hundred of hours now and still it is the toughest thing I do each day.

It might even be the best thing I do for myself.

It's not for the obvious reasons:
I don't have fear of missing out or regret of not doing something.
Nothing dark, scary, or physically painful has ever happens.

Why?
Really I have no clue.

It's not just me...

...that has this problem!

We have lots of passion.
We are motivated.
We do the work.
And we do this again and again.

So what's wrong?

We are easily distracted.
We have no attachment to what's important.
We are kids in a candy store.

I wonder if we are the only ones?
Is this a modern phenomenon?

Anyway...
Back to work.

Why rush?

Rushing to _____.
A 'chicken running around with it's head cut off'.
Every morning.

Why?
Where are you going?

There are NO, ZILCH, NINGUNO, ZERO benefits to rushed.

Theory:
Long-term perspective (don't chase the shinny thing)
+
Priorities in order (only so many fucks to give)
=
No rush.

"Over the handlebars"

There are so many 'what meditation is like' analogies.
One more.

You wreck
You go over the handle bars.
Kind stranger: "Are you ok?"
You: "I think so."

But you don't really know.
Yet.

There is too much adrenaline.
To feel much of anything.
To know the answer to "Are you ok?"

Chess Philosophy of Life

i - Facing attack, ask the question, "Defend or Counter?".
ii - Don't chase with only one piece. Develop your pieces. They are stronger working together.

I want to like you...

Help me out.
I'm angry.

Many options:
i - Be angry. Never go back.
ii - Be angry. Leave yelp review. Never go back  (unless they give you a gift certificate).
iii - Be angry. Calm down. Go Back. Remember your anger. Be angry AGAIN. Repeat. (my default)
iv - Go back tomorrow and say PLEASE....I WANT TO LIKE YOU. Help me out? I'm not too angry.
